“Floods can severely damage the structural integrity of your home by damaging support beams and foundations, and allowing moisture to create mold or mildew,” Clean Crawls explains. The article states that the first place a homeowner will begin to experience flooding is usually in their basement or crawl space.
“This is why,” they admonish, “it is so important to regularly check for any water accumulation in your crawl space.” Flooding can happen gradually or suddenly. The article warns that, if left undetected, flooding can cause many long term problems, such as weakened foundations and support beams, wood rot, mold and mildew problems, and poor air quality within the home.
Repairs to the structure or foundations of a building are exceedingly costly. Clean Crawls article suggests that adequate cleaning, drying, and reinsulating will save on expenses in the long run, as it will contribute to the ongoing integrity of the structure.
The article recommends taking precautions such as turning off all electrical power before entering the accumulated water, checking for water accumulation beneath the vapor barrier, and when to call in professional water extractors.
